Mambo Style Salsa Dance Moves

In this episode of Addicted2Salsa Dance Lesson show, we travel a bit to the East Coast in order to show you a very common and popular move to do at the salsa dance nightclub. The first move, which I call the "Cyclone Bounce" for no apparent reason, can be seen in many salsa dance congress on the East Coast. The second dance move is really taking most of the concepts from the The Windmill Combo salsa dance episode and putting a different spin on it. In the end, Julie will have a special section to showcase ladies' styling for the follows. Credit goes to David Stein for the inspiration for these moves.

SantoRico Performs "Gangsta"

Stumbling upon youtube videos again, one of our friends found this great performance by the Santo Rico dance team. I may not have mentioned them in a while, but here is a great find. They are some of the most amazing spinners you will ever see in performances throughout the world. One thing to notice, for us technical dancers, is that the men have a very unique prep that is circular, compared to the 'double-J' prep to lead multiple turns. Regardless, this is a must watch video for us looking for inspiration.
